?. l' nilicr I'ront."
JOHN MITI nu., lu his I'.irln Icttor to tho Now York
Daily Newt, uuder dato of May 28, auuouncea tho death
Of Falhor PROUT.
Two daya ago, in this city, died the celebrated "Father
Prout," whose i lullt nanni was Francis Mahony, one of
the most charming writers of our timo, nutt of our
tonguo. Bo was boru ia Cork County, and dlod at 62
yoarB of agc. AB a litterateur ho is best known by the
.Prout Papers,' a eor.CB of learned and witty jeux d'esprit
published originally in Frazer's Magazine. I kuo? not
whothor the Indefatigable Dr. McKenzie baa over edited
and published tho "Prout Papers" in America, as ho
has done by several other similar performances. If
not, thoy will desorvo this attention at his hands Poor
Father Mahony bad the misfortune, many years ago, to
quarrel with hie Church, and nineo that time has ue'vor
keon permitted to administer the sacraments.
AB a political writer ho bos always been distinguished
by a vchemont hatred of tho Popo in his temporal capa
city; and many thought he had broken off from his
Holiness In his spiritual capacity as well; <yet ou bia
death bed he received tho usual consolations of religion
?nd died. If uot in tho odor of sanctity, st least with ?
wafer on his tongue. For some years ho has resided in
Parie, wheuco hu wroto every day to tho Ol?/be news
paper; his letters woro tho only attractive feature ot that
paper; always Bhoitaud pithy, uevor dull, aud some
t?-es with a flue spico of bitter wit. Yet It loft a pain
ful Impression upon thoso who know who tho writor
was, to observe with what a cynical Inveteracy ho cater
ed for tho tasto of his Tory British public by abuBlng
everything Catholic, ovorythlag Fronob, and everything
lriBh. The oouutry iu which he resided from choice,
the religion In which ho was brought up, and the land
Where his mother bnro him, were all to bo snoered at for
that cultivated British publio for which ho wrote, and
he sneered accordingly.
Bomo years ago, iu ono of his letters to tho Globo, ho
announced my arrival in Paris uuder the d?signation of
"that notoiiouB Patlaudor." Toink of a man fiona
WatorgrasB Ulli, lu the County Cork, calling another a
Patlander, by way of a disparaging nioknamo, to ploaso
his enlightened British readers. Poor old man I his
hard service is ov? r; and ttio fine intellectual head will
bemiasod from the tablo of Ualignaul's reading r?.oni,
where it was to be seen every day for many a year. He
was small of Btaturo and slightly stooped, as studious
nien usually arc; his head was bald, the brow smooth,
broad and loity, with a coria- peevish sadncsB in his
expression. 1 could never look at him without a feel
ing of gratitude for many an hour of genuine laughtor
that ho gave lue in dava of old.
QDAUfftOAxmn or A LOCAL, EDITOB.-Tho list of our
.exchanges show largo numbers of dallies, semi-weeklies
And weeklies, springing full-fledged from tho ruins of
Southern interests of all sorts. A vast amount of talent
is thus omplojed, and a much larger amount would
gladly secure aacli work. Wo would encourage all aspi
rant? for whatever department. To any tyro just enter
ing ours, we would say, of the fullness of our experience,
it is easy enough to be a Local Editor-if you only think
?to-but BOBIO special quallllcatlons are OBseutial to suc
cess. For the el-gntenment of young men who havo
an itching that way, wo wdl enumerate some of the
indispensable virtues without which success is imposai
.ble. A good Local Editor must combine tho loquaolty
.of s magpie with the impudence of the devil. He
must be a walking ouojctopoodla of UBSfut knowl
edge. He mun kuow how to time a horse rice,
gaff a cook, teach Sunday School, preach a
oreditable sermon, run a saw mill, keep a hotel,
(turn a double stunmeraault, and brew a 'Whiskey
jit-cb. He must bo up to a thing or two in polllt
.oal economy, tai au fait in the matter ot cook in R beans.
On the ti-all of myaterious itema he mast bo a very
.sleuth-hound. His hide must be Uko that of a rhinoce
ros. Ho must be insensible to the crudest anubs, aud
manifest no sense of anger when he is kicked down
stairs. He must throw mooesty to the dogs, and let bli
-tiger howL But above all he must be an adept at puf
-ng. Tbe nearer ho approaches to the condition of a
black smith 'B bellows, tho better ko wUl succeed. He
must be ready at all times to say something funny in re
gard to Bmith'a grocery, or to surround alias Flounce's
millinery establishment with charms whioh will moko a
young maldon steal her father's last dime. In skill in '
sifting truth from nothing, he muat BUTpass a "Phila
delphia lawyer,"and in ability to till a column with just
that extract, while concealing the source, he must excel
A gentle-an, weU known in this metropolis, was .al
ways complaining to his father-in-law ot his wife's tem
per. At last papa-lnlaw, becoming very wearied of
.these ondleas grumblings, and being a bit of a wag, re*
pliod : "Well, my dear fellow, if I bear of bor torment
. Ing you any more I shall disinherit her." The husband
never again complained.-Home Journal.
